Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
Cadence Group®, an information and records management firm based in Atlanta, Georgia, is pleased to announce that Scott Murchison, Senior Practice Partner and Certified Records Manager (CRM), has been selected by ARMA International, the Association for Information Management Professionals, to present an education session on "Records Issues Regarding Portable Data Storage Devices" at the 2008 ARMA International Conference and Expo on October 20-23, 2008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Murchison will facilitate a discussion of strategies, best practices and methods to counter the challenges created by the proliferation of portable data storage and transmission devices - including personal e-mail devices such as Blackberrys, PDAs, cellular phones, electronic lab notebooks and non-network laptops.
Even companies that think they can avoid this issue by not authorizing use of the technology can benefit from this session - because the technology is surely in use whether or not companies sanction it. The session includes tips on how to educate the work force about minimizing associated risk. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss their e-Discovery, compliance and technology concerns with a records and information management (RIM) expert.
"Cadence Group subscribes to and supports the policies of ARMA International, and we are proud that Scott is speaking on this strategic topic," stated Cadence Group CEO and President, Tina Baker. "Scott has a wealth of experience with records compliance and the associated technology issues. He has implemented numerous RIM programs, policies and procedures including the electronic records retention and electronic communications policies that address portable devices."
As the premier event in the RIM industry, ARMA '08 will draw over 4,000 professionals to the show floor where they can find, compare and evaluate the products that service their organizations. More than 200 of the industry's leading vendors will demonstrate the latest RIM products and services. The Conference also offers more than 100 popular education sessions for effectively managing information. This year the focus is on "Where the Business & Technology of Managing Records & Information Converge."
